Ambient emotionalism, instrumental virtuosity and the imaginative fusion of technology and tradition marks the olllam as one of the most intriguing acts to emerge in Irish folk music in the last decade. Consisting of award-winning musicians and producers – Belfast piper John McSherry, Grammy-nominated producer Tyler Duncan, and percussionist Michael Shimmin and Vulfpeck bassist Joe Dart – their trans-Atlantic spin on traditional Irish music has pinned them to be a modern cult classic.

Their sophomore album, elllegy – released a decade after their debut – continues to build upon their endlessly impressive legacy. Now, they will be bringing their new sound on the road, for a special, rare performance in Manchester.
